"Trains is good fun... well worth the money." - TUAW.com
"...a fun game that tests your speed and ability to multi-task... a great game very similar to Flight Control." - AppChatter.com
If you like Flight Control by Firemint, you will love Trains! New lower price!
Trains is a fun, addictive, and challenging strategy game that requires a quick eye and nimble fingers. You control the tracks as a variety of colored trains speed through the yard. You switch intersections ahead of the trains to direct the cargo through the proper warehouses, and then safely off the screen. Proper switching drops off the cargo in the warehouses and rewards you with points. But if any of the trains collide, your time as engineer is done and you have to start over.
Each color of train is a different length and travels at a different speed, so you need to keep a careful eye on the tracks. Touch the junction points to change their orientation and keep the trains running to the correct warehouse, and then direct them clear of the yard. Watch for the crossing signs at the edges of the screen to see where the next train will emerge.

fun but needs work
graphics are too simplistic; sounds are cheap and thusly annoying. annoying bug where train cars can separate from engine if you erroneously hit a switch and the games ends as a it registers as a crash. game play randomness of trains would help with repeat play. knowing i have reds and blues, then yellows then greens… boring. game has potential. improve the graphics, sounds, bugs, and randomness of trains from the start.
I have had this game since first version. I love the game but my biggest problem is it does not save your place when you get a call or exit the program. Very frustrating when you have a good game going but get a call or have to do something else. No updates since 2009.
Could be better. Excellent game though.
